      A strange feature of these books is that their Tables of Contents/Indices are not alphabetized, but instead present the tunes in the same order they happen to appear in, in the book. This Planxty book, published by Commercial Colour Press, London E7, likewise has this feature, however the tunes appear in the book itself in (mostly) alphabetical. Apparently inspired by a documentary on the band aired on Irish television, the four original members of Planxty, Andy Irvine (vocals, mandolin, bouzouki), Donal Lunny (bouzouki, guitar, bodhran, vocals), Christy Moore (vocals, guitar, bodhran, keyboards), and Liam O'Flynn (uilleann pipes, tinwhistle), decided to rejoin for a few concerts, including this one captured on film.
